Does paper mache stir up memories of claggy, thick, mushy impossible stuff that goes mouldy? It just doesn’t have to be like that! Paper Mache is an amazing material to build all kinds of things, fruit bowls, funky light fittings, sculptures, mardi gras masks - just about anything!

So come along and try out this wonderful technique and create something awesome. No prior experience necessary.

There’s a better way to construct paper bowls and this class will show you exactly how. Make and decorate a bowl while you learn this super easy paper mache technique.

What will we cover?

  • We will make a paper mache bowl decorated with something personal and meaningful to you.
  • You will learn a simple technique and there will be no claggy porridge!
  • We will give you tips on more projects you can continue with.

Your teacher Pamela has a mountain of vintage books and cuts available at the class that she has collected for years. If you have any special books to cut up or old images bring them along to incorporate in your design as well (s long as they are matte for the best results).

In all cultures, ceramic vases and bowls have always been used to commemorate, a wedding, an anniversary or any significant event. The Ancient Greeks depicted epic battles, Keats wrote an ode to an Urn and now an artist like Grayson Perry explores his past on the surface of a vase.

We are inviting you to celebrate and create a story on a bowl, use images and type, quotes from your favourite novel or fragments of a poem… all using paper mache techniques!

Add-on available for this class
  • scissors, glue brush and sticky tape ($5)
You can add these when you book (optional).

What you'll get

I have had the best life ever, following my passions. I have worked as a script editor and writer and been a course leader and senior lecturer in the UK in film and TV and before that I was an illustrator and artist.

For the last 5 years have become increasingly interested in informal learning. I run classes around Sydney in different venues and concentrate on my passion of growing succulents, art and the art of teaching. I go by the name classbunny.
